"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... when I decided I needed a project car after an 18-year break, she was waiting for me for only $700. She's allowed me to teach my boys, Trevor and Austin, about her inner workings. She's run hard down the quarter mile for us at both Bremerton and Pacific Raceways with a best time to date of 11.72 at 115 mph. This summer I plan on rewarding her with a shiny new coat of paint."
